This can be said of virtually every city in the Country, even very wealthy ones. FL is not unique in this and there is no place significantly better. It usually is a case of the grass is greener and then ... it is found to be the same.

the thing i've noticed about FL compared to other places is that in FL, in can be really nice and then really ghetto the next block. i've not noticed this in other areas i've been to extensively.

CD Forum makes me laugh as there is such an hyperbole of drama by posters, how can anyone take this site seriously. I lived in Palatka and while going to college I found it somewhat of an interesting city. It took a while to adjust to the people as they would stare at you entering a public place. Sure there are some bad areas of town and really not anything to do but someone who is retired there or works for Georgia Pacific it can be quite nice as there are many places to go fishing and boating. It is definitely laid back but it all depends on ones perspective, one socioeconomic position if it is a bad or good place.

Cocoa beach is great, many are ignorant as you say. Plus its really the first CFL beach you come to with a noteciable population of coconut palms which gives it a more tropical feel than Daytona.

Palm Coast still sucks though.
While Daytona has always been a dump, Opa Locka is far worse.

Shows how up to date you are! Carol City no longer exists in the Miami metro. It is now a Incorporated city called Miami Gardens and it is where the Miami Dolphins now play.

It's different by me. Towns/Hamlets/Villages etc are usually good, bad, or in between. As a whole. Seems like in Florida every place has good/bad areas within the same zip code.
Here, there are very few places that have good/bad neighborhoods within the same zip.
Some neighborhoods may be more desirable than others but towns here are pretty uniform.
If it's a good town, the town as a whole is good. If its a bad town the entire town is bad.
It's one of the things I'm nervous about with moving.
